Haute Couture -- in Neon! -- UPDATED

Anyone care to guess why I chose this photo?  Recognize the lady with the pocketbook over her arm?  Consensus among family and friends is that is my mother.  My guess the photo was taken in the late 1940s or early 1950s, before I was born.  (The guess is based, believe it or not, on her eyeglasses style.)  Thanks to some really good sleuthing on the part of my Facebook friends, (thank you Lynne Holmes Lofton and Holly Pappas), we have determined that the location is 208 South Whitworth.  This building was recently remodeled by Johnny Lynch and returned to a look closer to its original front.
